November 8th, 2009 at 09:21 pm

It seems that international news still hasn´t picked this up:

Heavy rains have caused a national disaster! Thankfully, the area where I live is ok, we are safe, but, many people have died and, many more have lost absolutely everything! Frown

    To give you an idea, we got almost twice as much rain in 6 hours as we usually get IN A YEAR!!

  6. Ima saver Says:

    That is terrible, so sorry!

  7. Debtfreeme Says:

    I have been thinking about you, Ale and your family hoping you are all safe!!

  8. miclason Says:

    Thanks! We are ok. The only inconvenience at my house was that Fiona refused to "go out" under the rain... but, aside from that, the rain didn't bring any problems...Thank God I had the roof repaired a couple of months ago! (it was the tiniest of leaks in a corner of the girls' room, but, I don't think it would have held under all that rain!)

    La Prensa Grafica put up some pictures of the damages... Frown

    You have been on my mind all day and as sson as I got a break I looked for a post from you to see if you and Ale were ok. I was so relieved to read that you are!!! I hope the weather lets up and that your country recovers QUICKLY. Hugs!

    I'm sorry to hear about this. Glad you and Ale are ok.

    Thank you, all, we managed to find some things to donate and, I'm thinking about finding a place to volunteer on the weekend (so I can take Ale, too).
    I have a couple of friends that are involved in Active 20-30 and with international organizations, so they could tell me where to go. There is also an "aid center" 2 blocks from my office, so, about 7 blocks from my house...(don't know what the real name is, but it is a place where people bring their donations, then people at the center sort the stuff, package it and send it to the towns/shelters that need it most). I'm sure our church will also coordinate something, so, I really have no excuse not to do it!
